Co-Diovan film-coated tablets contain two active substances called Valsartan and Hydrochlorothiazide. Both of these substances help to control high blood pressure (hypertension). It is a combination of 2 drugs, Valsartan, and Hydrochlorothiazide. Valsartan belongs to ARB blockers with activity on angiotensin II. Hydrochlorothiazide works at the distal convoluted tubules to inhibit sodium chloride transport. This causes an increase in urine volume to reduce blood pressure.

Valsartan belongs to a class of medicines known as “angiotensin II receptor antagonists”, which help to control high blood pressure. Angiotensin II is a substance in the body that causes vessels to tighten, thus causing your blood pressure to increase. Valsartan works by blocking the effect of angiotensin II. As a result, blood vessels relax and blood pressure is lowered.

Hydrochlorothiazide belongs to a group of medicines called thiazide diuretics (also known as “water tablets”). Hydrochlorothiazide increases urine output, which also lowers blood pressure.

Co-Diovan is used to treat high blood pressure which is not adequately controlled by a single substance alone.

High blood pressure increases the workload of the heart and arteries. If not treated, it can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys, and may result in a stroke, heart failure or kidney failure. High blood pressure increases the risk of heart attacks. Lowering your blood pressure to normal reduces the risk of developing these disorders.
